Much better. Now small items can be placed inside without falling through and ending up on the floor.

CJs Pony Parts also supplied a pair of new sunvisors, which the car desperately needed. Removing the old ones involves firmly pulling them off the visor rods. You can also cut the old material away, but you'll still have to remove the metal part that attaches the visor to the rod. With everything else out of the way, this can be done with a pair of locking pliers.

The new visors install by pressing them onto the rods. Some spray lubricant is helpful since you have to be a little more careful installing the new visors than removing the old ones.

Door-panel installation was the final step. Be careful with the clips that hold the door panel in place. Make sure they're properly aligned in their holes in the door so when you press the panel in place, they don't pop through on the outside of the panel. If they're not lined up and you hit the panel hard enough, you could end up with one or more popping through-not a good thing with brand-new door panels.

It was a big job, but the results were worth the effort. The carpet, seat upholstery, door panels, and dashpad are the main pieces in a new interior. But as you've seen with our three-part series, there's much more to it than those main pieces. These door panels don't look good on their own; they need to be assembled with refurbished or new parts to get them to really shine. Now this car has a fresh, new look inside that's all set to go for another three decades.
